“I am the Democratic Party right now.” Those are big words spoken by Joe Biden during the first presidential debate. He may be the presidential candidate, but he’s certainly not the entire party.
The biggest problem with the Democratic Party is that there’s a huge disconnect. They don’t have the same ideals. Realistically, the party should be split into two or three. Even Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has said that she doesn’t agree with Biden on a number of topics.
How can a candidate say that he’s the entire party if he can’t even get on the same page as some of the most prominent members of his party?
There are quite a few things that Dems have been asking for. Some are even included within Biden’s campaign platform. However, after the debate, it’s left many Dems questioning how in the world he can even be a part of the Democratic Party.
Quite a few left-leaning Dems want to see the police defunded. Biden at the debate: I don’t support the “Defund the Police” movement.
Many Dems want to see the New Green Peace Deal passed. Biden at the debate: I don’t support the New Green Peace Deal. I support the Biden deal.
It seems that Biden is far from in touch with the needs of his constituents. He may have lost quite a few votes last night as Democrats realized that they’re not going to get what they want out of him.
The former Vice President used very strong words as a way to defend himself against Trump. Unfortunately, it rubbed Dems the wrong way. Biden was quick to say that he was in charge of the Democrat Party’s healthcare plan.
Trump was quick to point out that while Joe was out of the White House for the past four years that the Dems have already been mucking with the healthcare system. He reminded Biden that the Dems would love nothing more than to have socialist medicine and healthcare. “They’re going to dominate you, Joe.”
Biden took a deep breath, the vein in his temple throbbed, and he said, “The party is me. Right now, I am the Democratic Party. I am the Democratic Party right now.”
Well, that’s a news flash for all of the Democrats sitting in Congress. All of the Representatives and Senators that are actively involved in legislation for the Democratic Party may have some pretty strong words for Biden right now. After all, they’re the ones fighting to get the Dems’ healthcare plans into action.
Trump was also quick to quip, “Not according to Harris” when it comes to Biden being the Democratic Party. After all, Harris has mentioned on more than one occasion that it will be the Harris administration. She seems to be in on a plan that hasn’t been shared with all of the voting Americans yet.
It comes down to Biden being out of touch with the needs of Americans. He’s been sitting in Congress for too long and hiding in his basement instead of talking to working-class Americans.
He can’t possibly be the entire Democratic Party. He wants to expand Obamacare – a healthcare plan that has cost millions of people thousands of dollars a month to stay insured. Trump has a better plan – provide Americans with good health care.
Biden continues to flip flop on what he wants. One minute he tells people that he’s a Constitutionalist and the next, he’s going on about some of the more ridiculous plans he has for the country.
There are too many Dems who don’t agree with him. The reality is that the only votes he will get are because of the whole “Vote Blue No Matter Who” movement. No one wanted to have Biden as their presidential candidate – they just seemed to get stuck with him.
So, he has the audacity to say that he’s the Democratic Party? This might be worse than telling the Black community that they “ain’t black” if they don’t vote for him.
